All applicants must be interviewed before they can be accepted by the Department. As a minimum this process must involve the prospective supervisor and Dr David Sargan as Director of Graduate Studies for the Department as well as the Graduate Officer.  However, it is preferable that two academic staff are included on the panel.

No offer should be made at the end of the interview until discussion has occurred with the Graduate Office and/or the Head of Department.
